Maybe the Fredrick's will donate some money to help build it, they've got enough to help out their community.

Isn't it strange that what it's gonna cost to fix the courthouse is the same amount that the city paid for that property from the Fredrick's?

Better to buy materials from a local company rather than a store like Lowe's. Might as well keep Morgan County money in Morgan County.

Did not see Fredricks name mentioned in this article. Sounds like to me the county took a chance and under insured the project. They don't want to wait and do some negotiating. This will cost the state taxpayers not just local.

Shoddy sub-standard materials were used and found out about after the storm....Inspectors not inspecting...What tickles me most is that someone on the state level is falling for it...

You should see the so called handicapped acessible sidewalks campton put in. You can't even get a wheelchair or a scooter on them from the pavement much less them being able to move around on the sidewalks. How those passed through the state is beyoned me.
Otherwise they look great.
